Pavement markings are those lines on the road that direct traffic and guide drivers in a way that ensures they are able to safely navigate their vehicles on the road and in parking lots. Pavement markings may include symbols like arrows or lines, as well as lettering. At Nashville Asphalt services, we understand how essential pavement markings are to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists on highways, schools, and parking lots. This is why we put a lot of effort into being the best pavement marking services in the whole of Nashville, Tennessee. So that you know, we don’t make pavement markings based on our artistic discretions. Every arrow, line color, and curve serve the purpose of telling the driver how to drive on the road. Surprisingly, a lot of motorists do not have this knowledge.
Yellow Pavement Markings
Yellow pavement markings can be found on roads where there is two-way traffic. In other words, they only appear on two-way streets that do not have any divisions to divide the flow of both sides of traffic. Yellow Markings come in two different forms. They may be solid or dashed/broken. The broken yellow center lines are used to indicate that overtaking is allowed on the road on which it is painted. On the other hand, a solid yellow center line means that overtaking is not permitted on that two-way road.
White Pavement Markings
White Pavement markings are not also there just to make the road beautiful. They are used to maintain order and direct traffic. Just like yellow pavement markings, white pavement markings can also be used to indicate whether overtaking is allowed on that road. Broken white lines let drivers know that lane changes are permitted. White solid lines indicate that land changes are not acceptable. They are often also used to delineate the shoulder of the road. White directional arrows indicate that turn lanes and the direction of traffic on roads and streets where it is necessary.
School Pavement Markings
Pavement markings are not only meant to be used on highways. They are also needed in places like schools where safe driving is of utmost importance. Professionals like us create signs like the Zebra Crossing and Slow Down School Area. Also, the yellow and white pavement markings are useful in the school areas for the direction of traffic during those hectic school mornings.
